    Logos, or logic, involves looking for arguments that make sense in a piece. Amy Tan’s essay is very logical. It makes complete sense, and is simple to understand. Being that it is a narrative, she uses examples to back up her statements about English. She tells the stories of her mother dealing with the stockbroker and the hospital as means to make her point clearer. Ethos looks at the author’s credibility. Tan is a well-known writer, and does a lot of public speaking. We can trust her qualifications as a writer and an English speaking American. When she shares her stories we can be sure that she is someone we can believe. Lastly, pathos, or emotion, is an appeal in writing. Especially with this type of writing, it is easy to find. “Mother Tongue” evokes many emotions. Readers in a way can empathize with Tan, when she shares the fact that she believes her mother’s broken English has limited her possibilities in life. It is appealing to all those who have experienced difficulty with…

    Victor Rios conducted his own study on treatment of young Latino boys who live in Oakland California. Rios chose Oakland to address the policing that occurs in his home town. The primary argument Rios determines for policing of this minority stems from the process of criminalization “Criminalization and punishment were practiced and perfected on Black populations.

    although many anti-Panther actions around the country appealed to be purely local police initiatives, most were actually coordinated by the FBI’s COINTELPRO operatives in each locality.” Though the effectiveness of state repression programs are difficult to evaluate and measure, in September 1969 alone, police across the nation arrested Panthers on 46 separate occasions, with at least 348 Panthers being arrested during that whole year. Furthermore, by the beginning of 1970, most of the Party’s…

    Though the Black Panther Party had experienced its most influential years in San Francisco and Oakland between 1967 and 1972, a lack of census data from non-decennial from NHGIS narrowed my quantitative GIS analysis solely to 1970. Despite this small window of information, the metadata I had applied as layers within ArcMap had provided me with a surprising amount of insight to the racial and economic landscape of Panther activities at the height of their potency as well as at the height of…
